I have discovered a real gem in a new eating establishment I recently visited. Little Dave's Deli is a fun, nostalgic place that offers great food and reasonable prices.

Just walking into the deli makes you feel like you've taken a step back in time. Vintage sodas and authentic memorabilia from the 1920s and 30s lines the walls, adding to the period feel of Little Dave's Deli, located just off Main Street on 3300 South in Salt Lake City.

Owner Dave Stone wanted his deli to have the feel of a soda shop, and I think he accomplished his goal. However, what really makes Little Dave's special is the food. You can order a sumptuous sandwich in either six or 12 inches. The menu offers 12 sandwiches, and each comes with lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, pickles and a hint of cherry peppers. Additional condiments are also available upon request.

My favorite sandwich is the popular Philly Cheese Steak, which is the top seller. However, the Chicken Steak sandwich is also delicious. Little Dave's offers great salads, homemade soups and an incredible frozen desert called the Jersey Stick. During my visit, I also loved trying the country-style BBQ Pork Ribs. The pork is smoked in-house and the tangy-sweet sauce is made fresh daily. All food items are made from scratch.

What really blew me away was the huge selection of vintage sodas. Little Dave searched the country for the old brands that I thought had long disappeared from the market. He discovered many are still made, and there is a good chance that if you can remember a popular soda from the good old days, you can find it at his deli.

If you're in a hurry and aren't sure you have time to wait for your food, you can order it online. All you need to do is e-mail your order to and you will receive a confirmation. Your order will be ready when you arrive!

Little Dave's Deli offers tasty food, great ambiance and a trip down memory lane.
